20 April 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Patel to Paine, no run, Uthappa survives a run-out chance. Symonds can't believe he's missed it from around four metres away. Paine chips out, taps to Symmo charging in from cover and then decides to call off the single. Uthappa turns back, and would have been gone if Symmo hit the stumps. He missed.


Patel to Paine, OUT, Pune are in trouble here. Munaf's removed Paine and celebrated with with typical minimalism. Effort ball, Munaf got that across faster than normal and it was a touch short too. Paine looked to pull and missed, the ball clipped top of off. Munaf is one of those seamers with no follow through. He stops, puts his hand up, looks down the track seriously and walks slowly down the track.

TD Paine b Patel 2 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22


Patel to Yuvraj Singh, no run, back of a length on middle, worked cautiously to the leg side.


Patel to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Yuvraj is gone. Pune have lost four wickets in eight balls. I need time to breathe. Munaf keeps it on that nagging length outside off, Yuvraj's feet don't move very decisively early on and he pokes it through to Rayudu, as it angles past. Munaf lets out a bit of a roar this time as he puts the hand up and walks down the track.

Yuvraj Singh c †Rayudu b Patel 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Patel to Mishra, 2 runs, that's daring for you. Mishra pulls the first ball, it angles in fast and short and he gets into no position as he pulls. He gets it wide of the keeper to the leg side and they run one.


Patel to Mishra, FOUR, very very edgy from Pune. Mishra nicks one wide of slip and through to third man for four. Munaf once again lands it back of a length and gets it to nip away a touch.

Pune Warriors 23/4   MM Patel 1-0-6-2

Patel to Mishra, 1 run, back of a length, and ends on middle and leg, Mishra works it to deep square leg for one


Patel to Uthappa, no run, that deceptive Munaf legcutter now, and Uthappa nearly falls for it as it nips away late. Uthappa is squared up after leaning forward to play to the leg side, and edges wide of slip.


Patel to Uthappa, no run, a touch outside off, Uthappa walks into an angled steer through backward point.


Patel to Uthappa, no run, Uthappa shuffles across to off stump and looks to work Munaf to the leg side from there. Can't get the single.


Patel to Uthappa, 1 run, again Uthappa walks across and nudges through midwicket, this time he gets the single.


Patel to Mishra, no run, flash outside off, Mishra doesn't edge though. He may want to control the impulse to hit everything, for a while.

Pune Warriors 35/4   MM Patel 2-0-8-2

Patel to Sharma, no run, starts off with a length ball wide outside off, Rahul tries to slam it down the ground but misses. Munaf stands mid-pitch, with hands on his hips, like a tired old man, and smiles.


Patel to Sharma, OUT, Pune are bowled out with many overs to spare. Munaf again keeps it outside off, Rahul carves it in the air, and Murtaza at deep point runs in to pouch it. So far, a very one-sided derby game this.

R Sharma c Murtaza b Patel 13 (9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 144.44

Pune Warriors 118/10   MM Patel 2.2-0-8-3
